Barn Buddies Feral Program
From time to time we receive cats or kittens that are too wild to adopt into homes as household pets. Since Responsible Pet Care is a no-kill facility it means any feral cat coming into the shelter will stay with us for the rest of its life if it cannot be adopted.
We recognize that living in a cage for many years is not the ideal condition for any animal. Therefore, we are working to find appropriate places for feral cats such as barns, large garages, and enclosed areas. Any place where a cat can find a safe shelter and be fed by the property owner.
If you own a place where cats can safely live a free life you may be interested in providing a home for two or more feral cats.
- All feral cats placed in rural settings have tested negative for feline leukemia and feline AIDS
- All feral cats are vaccinated for rabies and distemper
- All feral cats are spayed or neutered
- Two or more feral cats must be taken
- The cats must be contained in an appropriate shelter for a least a three week adjustment period
- After the adjustment period the cats can be released, but appropriate shelter must be provided for them at the same location
- The cats must be fed and given water daily
- The fee to adopt feral cats is a suggestion donation of $50.
- Recipients of feral cats assume ownership and responsibility for them
